I came across this page and the comments about initial setup.  I agree, and have updated the images.  While I was at it, I changed the first image to use the Diagram Designer.  (I left the second; I guess I have a soft spot for those ffen->diagram scripts.)

For the record, the old diagrams put bishops on file b rather than c.  It may be worth mentioning, that setup does guard the vulnerable c pawns, so it might be a worthwhile alternative setup, if same-color bishops don't bother you or if you adopt a bishop conversion rule.
